hi I am trying to compile a servlet program.I tried to set the path for java & apache by running this batch file:
set path=%path%=;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0\bin;C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Tomcat 4.1\bin
set classpath=%classpath%=;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0\lib;C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Tomcat 4.1\lib\tools.jar
I can execute javac command from DOS prompt,but when i compile my program


it cannot find javax servlet packages & hence doesnot compile.

I have tried using J2EE & using corresponding batch file.It compiles & executes in J2EE

You also need to add servlet-api.jar to your CLASSPATH.
It's located in tomcat/common/lib.
In that version of Tomcat, it may be called "servlet.jar".
